November 17: We are the 99%

On November 17, we're declaring a national economic emergency. We'll gather in front of bridges and schools to draw attention to the failed economy. Can you host an event in Inwood?

Can you host on the 17th?

Dear MoveOn member,

In just 16 days, the congressional "Super Committee" could announce a proposal with billions of dollars in job-killing cuts—instead of raising taxes on the 1%.1

Washington doesn't understand—or doesn't care—that we're in a state of economic emergency.

The 99% can't take more of the same from Congress. So we're organizing a massive day of action on November 17 to draw a line in the sand. We'll rally at crumbling bridges, understaffed schools, and other sites that show the local symptoms of a failed economy—the very places that can also create millions of new jobs. In all 50 states and in every corner of the country, we'll demand that Congress stand up for a plan that helps us, not the 1%.  

There's not an event in Inwood yet. Can you sign up to host? You'll get all the materials and support you need to organize a powerful, media-friendly event, and we'll invite other MoveOn members in the area to attend.

Yes, I can lead an event!

I can't lead this event, but keep me up to date on the campaign.

The past months have been filled with powerful, creative, and passionate displays of people fighting back against a system rigged against them. But many of our elected officials continue to sit on the sidelines—or worse, to look out only for millionaires and powerful industries. Until we start to see our economy transformed, we'll keep taking to the streets to amplify our voices.

That's why we're working with SEIU, AFL-CIO, Occupy Wall Street, and other groups to organize hundreds of events for our "We Are The 99%" day on November 17. If we organize enough events, tens of thousands of Americans can maximize their voices a week before the Super Committee decision. Can you lead a We Are The 99% event in Inwood?

Yes, I can organize an event on November 17!

I can't lead this event, but keep me up to date on the campaign.

By leading an event, you can help make change and meet people who care about fighting for the 99% as much as you do!

Thanks for all you do.
